The Festival Theme this year is ‘Memories’
As many of us are too aware dementia devastates lives! It is the biggest killer in the UK today!
We are the UK’s leading dementia charity. Every day, we work tirelessly to find new treatments and a cure for dementia. We provide expert information, training, and support services to all those who need our help and we are creating a more dementia friendly society so people with the condition can live without fear and prejudice.
A Message From Our Chairman
The Parade theme this year is “Memories”. It will be led by a celebrity the Queen and her attendants. Many pupils of the local primary schools will be taking part. Over the last few months they have been working hard to produce highly colourful costumes depicting many different characters who fit the theme. Please come along and support them. As in previous years, all the local schools will be participating again in both the Festival Parade and the Concert in the Parc.
There are four Festival competitions: children’s literary and drawing competitions, a photographic competition, and this year there is also an adult’s art competition. Full details can be found in this programme.
